IRRI is a platform and mechanism for partnerships between national agricultural research and extension systems (NARES) and IRRI. One major line of work is Country Outreach Programs, wherein IRRC staff members work closely with in-country partners to exchange information on technological developments, experimentally validate technologies, facilitate information exchange between research and extension, and integrate crop management principles and technologies. Scaling out the principles and technologies is done by providing logistical support to in-country 'champions', providing technical advice, assisting with developing support materials for local extension experts, and conducting collaborative sociological studies on the factors that influence adoption by farmers. This project was recently terminated and will start again in 2013 under a new name CORIGAP to be funded by SDC.
